I woke up at midnight

from a beautiful dream

The dream in which

you and I

walked through the woods

by the crystal clear stream

Until someone kicked me

Pushed me, shook me


And here I am


with stabs through my heart

With the one

who matters so much

no longer by my side

But I wait here

ever optimistic

in parts at least


that you would

walk back to me

I have opened my heart

to you

The hollowness


but it’s not the same

The love for you

that I have

within me

is unbreakable

and remains

and it waits

perhaps with false hope

for your voice

your eyes

your warmth

My arms open wide


Yes, always
